    Social Vs. Traditional Learning

    There is no argument that growing up in the digital era, solely dependent on the technological interaction with our peers, that we as students struggle with academic writing. A lot of times when assigned research papers it’s like pulling teeth to write. I become extremely stressed about the assignment and…

    Blogs vs. Term Papers

    by

    Blogs vs. Term Papers

    I’m kind of 50/50 with this topic. I like blogs because it gives you a chance to better your writing. I like term papers because once you turn it in and get it back from the teacher you’ll get a chance to see what you need to work on and …

    In writing there is such a thing as good and bad writers. The category I would fall under is a bad writer. I know as you read this you think this person has no confidence, but I am just being honest. In the book On writing by Stephen King he says …

    Writing Focus, Part II: Getting Motivated

    by

    Another aspect of writing that I’ve been dealing with is actually getting motivated to write in the first place. I’ve found that one of the hardest (if not THE hardest) thing about writing simply is getting started! It lies in the uncertainty about to start the entire project. It’s also known as …

    Complete the Task!

    by

    What I have realized through many years of schooling, is that- a task must be completed! Class assignments are not given randomly to occupy a students time, or even waste it; but to instruct. When I was younger I would reason that if I skipped an assignment, it is acceptable …
